Sensational Haiku Wednesday: Challenge

Join the fun!

The challenges faced
gives rise to our character.
How will you proceed?

As one filled with fear
and a "why me" attitutude
hiding in the dark?

Or with inner strength;
a calm determination
overcoming angst.

I propose to you
that with faith and fortitude
success will follow.

For more haiku hijinks, please visit Jenn
Next week's theme: TRAVEL

Oh and remember...if you would like to participate please link up
at You know...that blog? and let Jenn know that I sent you!

When I've got challenges, I like to put on some low down, kicked-dog blues and have a drink, but it's usually something girly, like an Arbor Mist, and then I ruin the whole gritty, woe-is-me mood.

Interesting, I suppose how we react to challenge depends on the type of challenge we face.

Have a lovely day,
Jade

Polly your Haiku was absolutely beautiful.
"Or with inner strength;
a calm determination
overcoming angst"
What a wonderful selection of words.

Great reminder of the choices we make when challenged. This is something I think I'll be working on for the rest of my life. I say this because based on the challenges that have come my way lately, He obviously thinks I need to learn some more. SIGH. Great haiku.
